This morning was spent at the µ-VIS unit at Southampton University getting a falconry hood scanned for the Verne project. I have chosen a hood made by Kevin McMillan, ‘anglo-indian’ in style, […]
Here are some initial ideas about the layout of the exhibition in the Verne. The descent from the top level to the bottom will play an important part in the […]
It is time to decide upon a title for my project at the Verne, but I am not there yet with the work. I have a clear idea of the main elements for the […]
It was only in the last couple of weeks leading up to A Space for the Bittern that I found myself travelling back to my school math classes, exploring the workings of venn […]
A final image from ‘A Space for the Bittern’, and a thank you to the more than 100 people that came to see the installation at Waterhay (on a weekend […]
In answer to the question posed here, yes, the bittern did make it into the exhibition. It featured on the ‘decoy’ video mentioned in the previous post.

Tonight is the opening of Unravelling Uppark in the wonderful setting of Uppark House atop the South Downs. Here is an invitation to the opening. It would be great to see you there! (photograph by Jim […]
Yesterday was spent with the the senior M&E (mechanical and electrical) engineer for the Canal & River Trust, trying to get my head around the control systems, feedback loops, electrical and […]
Back at art college for my final degree show I produced a sculpture made from sliced inflatable decoy ducks, each duck connected to an air pumping system which slowly inflated […]
A years worth of data is captured in the shapes of these twelve forms, each one representing a month. Made out of sintered bronze, they are now ready to go […]
Today has been spent along the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal researching for a project for the Canal & River Trust in Gloucester. The canals are a fascinating mix of engineering […]
